CCCB Winner

Good morning lovely people ...

I'm back from a short break in Lincoln with my adorable Aunt... Oh my... I don't think I stopped laughing and talking... It's always so hard to leave.

Well, as you know I offered a prize to someone who both entered the challenge to CASE my card at City Crafter and also left a comment ... I got my Aunt to pull out a winner and the winner is
Well done to you Maria ... I loved your card  - Please email me with your address at
to receive your prize.

I have a few photos to share before I go... I noticed a blackbird yesterday with a beak full of worms

Obviously there are babies to feed, but then the bird noticed some cat biscuits on a saucer and decided to have one... The funny thing was the bird kept hopping back to the plate and ate a fair share of the biscuits whilst still keeping those wriggling worms in it's beak!

Oh and there's a new kitty on the block ...

How gorgeous is she! Of course my son makes a big fuss of her and she calls everyday to see him. I just hope that she doesn't decide to leave her home for ours.

Have yourselves a wonderful weekend

Double D Challenge

Hello again...

I'm back to share a project I made for the new challenge at
Where Darlene's team are hosting a challenge to use a Silhouette(s)

I've wanted to re-create a project that I made ages ago and framed. Over the years it has faded - it had  a sentimental meaning to me - You can see the original post and picture here
Here's my remake

I've yet to frame it and maybe I will add some shells and things to the frame

I used the new Distress Oxides to sponge this and I'm not sure if I agree that they blend more easily but they certainly react with water in a different way... you can create splashes in the sea water and dab off for clouds.

The images are stamped and the trees were cut on the Cameo... For the computer generated sentiment I used a piece of printable acetate...

Head on over to the Double D Blog to see what both Darlene and Diane's team have created and once again there is a lovely prize on offer

Have a lovely day

City Crafter 358

Hello and good morning!

I'm in Lincoln for a few days, spending time with my Aunt so this is pre-scheduled please note that I will announce the winner of my prize for last week's City Crafter Challenge at the end of the week...

Still in the midst of our 7th year celebrations at City Crafter with
CASE Me If You Can
 The lovely Stella has given us this card to CASE

Here's my take ...

I made this as a get well card for one of my hubby's friends and my elements are on the bottom right rather than the top as on Stella's card

I've also taken the cloud element from Stella's card but added raindrops instead of polka dots
Of course you can use any of the elements or the design to make it your own version... 

Head on over to the blog to see what the team have created and for details of how to win this prize from Stella too!

Have fun!

City Crafter 357

Hello lovely people...

We're still celebrating City Crafter's 7 year anniversary with 
CASE me if you Can

This week it's my turn to offer you a card to CASE and here it is

You can use the design, or any of the elements to make it your own - The team have all CASEd this - go visit the blog to take a peek...

I also CASEd it myself and here's my second card

It's totally different but it still has the design, some ink blending, a gate instead of the music note and a dog in place of the cat

You probably can tell from the photo but the wellingtons are really glossy and there are puddles of rain around them and the pup ... It reminds me of when I went walking with my dogs.

I am also offering this prize for one lucky person check out the details on the City Crafter Blog 

I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with

I'm going to enter both my cards at Happy Little Stampers

Thanks so much for your visit and enjoy your day!

CAS Watercolour Challenge

Hello there...

Since I did club night last Thursday and prepared all those projects, I haven't had much inclination to create at all... Sometimes I think I just get burnt out 
This afternoon I forced myself to create something... I wanted to make a card for the current challenge at CAS Watercolour

I love green and use it a lot, but pink? Mmm... I'm more blues and greens and being creatively challenged this week hasn't helped. But finally I have something to share

I think that paint pattern shows where my creative head is ... all over the place ha!
As always I used ordinary card stock and Gansai Tambi paints. You could be forgiven for thinking that the white dots are splattered white paint but actually I spattered some Goosebumps before painting...

...I was curious to see what would happen as I've only ever used it when ink blending and then I stamped with it. It's just been sitting in my cupboard and the spray was blocked so I spattered instead.

Well it's a start and thank goodness I work ahead with DT stuff or I would really be panicking!

I hope you're having a good start to the week... 

Till soon
